In a house of boys...

Living with three boys (my husband, son, and dog), sometimes I need to look at pretty, girlie things to snap me out of their world of testosterone. Here are a few of my favorite images right now:

a kitschy cool upcycled Jemima Jones clutch of the floral variety by sparkyjones
Sequoia from Shabby Apple

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my house of boys, but sometimes I just want to hide in a princess room filled with pink and cupcakes (or a whole cake)!  :)

Beautiful images!

It is so funny. I have four, yes four, girls and sometimes I just want to yell and watch football and drink beer! I am constantly surrounded by pink, ruffles, and bows and sometimes I want an escape from that into a man-cave! LOL

So funny- your post and Rachel's comment, above! Yes, I totally get what you mean. My sister-in-law has 2 sons, and has to make sure that she incorporates GIRL TIME into her activities and schedule.

Thank you for your "re-comment"!! I, since staying at home from work, have really stopped Getting Ready! So, you may think your comment is a 'no-brainer' but it really helped!!! I am going to start getting up, taking a shower, a decent outfit, hair/make-up/accessory... getting ready everyday- even if I stay at home! I have done this (not often enough) and you are so right- It makes a world of difference for both how I feel and act!! Thank you for your insight and for the link; I've never seen it before and I really appreciate it.

I am so with you on escaping boy world. I have three brothers and three sons. Sometimes I lose my mind and other times it is quite refreshing when I hear a bunch of girls screaming when I am out shopping! :)
